3D Printing Is Quietly Transforming An Unexpected Industry: Museums

3D Printing Is Quietly Transforming An Unexpected Industry: Museums

A few years ago, we were promised that 3D printing would transform the world. In 2011, the Economist featured a 3D-printed Stradivarius violin on its front page, claiming that 3D printing "may have as profound an impact on the world as the coming of the factory did." These enormous hopes for digital fabrication, and especially 3D printing, may have seemed overinflated. But perhaps the impacts are finally materializing. [Fast Company]

Modern Apartment Imagines What It'd Be Like to Live Inside A Mondrian Painting

Modern Apartment Imagines What It'd Be Like to Live Inside A Mondrian Painting

Bulgaria-based studio Brani & Desi (founded by twin sisters Branimira Ivanova and Desislava Ivanova) designs modern spaces "where geometry, colors and functions have equal responsibility." Given this threefold focus, it is no surprise that the duo has turned to abstract painter Piet Mondrian for inspiration. Mondrian pioneered De Stijl, a movement that revolved around the simplification of form and tone. In the work of Mondrian, this approach most often materialized as linear compositions rendered in red, white, blue, and yellow—an aesthetic at the core of Brani & Desi's plans for their Breakfast With Mondrian apartment.

22 Of The Most Interesting Museum Buildings Around The World

22 Of The Most Interesting Museum Buildings Around The World

There's an old adage that states it's only what's inside that matters, but the saying doesn't quite apply to museum buildings—or at least it shouldn't. Any good museum worth its salt knows that if it intends to captivate and enchant its visitors with its collections and exhibitions, the inspiration should spark long before they walk through the front doors. The buildings on this list blur the line between art and architecture; they're structures that look unlike anything to have come before. [Architectural Digest]
